This color image of Io, acquired by the Galileo spacecraft in 1997, shows volcanic plumes on the bright edge of the moon, erupting over a volcanic depression named Pillan Patera. The plume rises some 140 kilometers (86 miles) high into space.  PHOTOGRAPH BY NASA/JPL/UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA

If Our Eyes Could See Gravitational Waves - This is what the merger of two black holes would look like. The image is a computer simulation of the gravitational waves that would ripple away from the titanic collision. However, the disturbance is not in water, but the spacetime continuum; the mathematical 'fabric' of space and time Albert Einstein used to explain gravity - NASA/C Henze

Visible-Light Image Of Jupiter

WOW: Hubble Snaps Farthest-Ever View Into Universe

ABOUT THIS IMAGE: An image of Jupiter in visible-light from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope (HST) on May 2007 showing the turbulent pattern generated by the two plumes at the upper left part of Jupiter. Object Name: Jupiter

The Hourglass Nebula, 8,000 light years away, has a pinched-in-the-middle look because the winds that shape it are  weaker at the centre.

Exoplanet HD 189733b

Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have, for the first time, determined the true color of a planet orbiting another star. If seen up close this planet, known as HD would be a deep azure blue, reminiscent of Earth’s color.

The new world, known as 51 Eridani b, is only 20 million years old - a toddler by astronomical standards.  The alien world could yield clues to the formation of our Solar System, which has an unusual lay-out.  The find was made by the Gemini Planet Imager (GPI), which looks for faint, young planets orbiting bright, relatively nearby stars.

Young 'alien Jupiter' discovered

Astronomers have detected the smallest alien planet yet to be directly photographed by a telescope on Earth, a methane-shrouded gas giant much like a young Jupiter. The planet 51 Eridani b orbits a star 96 light-years from Earth and resembles a young Jupi

Visualizing The Size And Scale Of Our World

The scale of it all! Understanding the size of Earth in comparison to the rest of our solar system -- an amazing illustration to visualize the size and scale of our world!

This is an artist's interpretation of the brown dwarf  Gl 229B. It has a dull red color that the eye can see with the luminosity coming out of the infrared.  There are some magnetic spots seen on this image as it is thought that younger brown dwarfs posses magnetic fields. This dwarf is to be said 40 AU away. Image by Pat Rawllings

well damn

well.....FUCK

The scale of planets and stars - Puts things in perspective - funny how the smaller of those stars is more likely to live the longest. Really puts thing in perspective

Aurora | Mission Juno  Jupiter's auroras as seen by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory with a visible light image of the gas planet taken at about the same time by the Hubble Space Telescope

As the New Horizons spacecraft approached Jupiter en route to Pluto in February Chandra took exposures of the gas giant. The purpose of the Chandra observations is to study the powerful X-ray auroras observed near the poles of Jupiter.
